At the end of the 21st century, Earth is devastated by chemical warfare. What little habitable land remains is divided into two territories, the United Federation of Britain (UFB, located on mainland Europe) and the Colony (Australia). Many residents of the Colony travel to the UFB to work in factories via “the Fall”, a gravity elevator running through the Earth’s core. A Resistance operating in the UFB seeks to improve life in the Colony, which the UFB views as a terrorist movement.
Colony citizen Douglas Quaid[8] has been having dreams of being a secret agent, aided by an unknown woman. Tired of his factory job building police robots with friend Harry, he visits Rekall, a virtual entertainment company that implants artificial memories. Among the choices Rekall salesman Bob McClane offers Quaid are the memories of a secret agent. An emblem of rekall is stamped onto his arm. Just as Quaid is starting to be implanted, McClane discovers that he already has real memories of being a covert operative. As McClane starts to question Quaid about the memories, UFB police officers burst in, killing the Rekall crews and attempt to arrest Quaid. Quaid instinctively reacts and kills the officers before escaping. Upon returning home his wife Lori attempts to kill him, revealing that she is an undercover UFB agent who has been monitoring him for the past six weeks. After Quaid escapes, Charles Hammond, a “friend” Quaid does not recognize, contacts him and directs him to a safe-deposit box. Quaid finds a recorded message from his former self with the address of a UFB apartment.
While being pursued by Lori and other human and robot police, Quaid meets Melina, the woman from his dreams. At the apartment Quaid finds another recording, revealing that his name is actually Carl Hauser, an agent working for UFB Chancellor Vilos Cohaagen. After defecting to the Resistance, Hauser was captured by the UFB and implanted with false memories. The recording reveals that Cohaagen will use robots to invade the Colony so the UFB will have more living space. Hauser, however, has seen a “kill code” that would disable the robots. The code can be recovered from his memory by Resistance leader Matthias. Melina reveals that she was Hauser’s lover before Hauser was captured; she proves that they knew each other by showing that they have matching scars from a time they were both shot whilst holding hands. The police surround the apartment building and Harry appears. He tries to convince Quaid that he is still in a Rekall-induced dream and that killing Melina is the only way out. Quaid is conflicted, but notices a tear on Melina’s cheek and shoots Harry instead. Lori pursues the pair inside the building’s lifts, but fails to capture them.
Quaid and Melina meet with Matthias. While Matthias searches Quaid’s memories, Lori and Cohaagen storm the Resistance base. Cohaagen reveals that Hauser was in fact working for him without Quaid even knowing it due to the memory alteration, using the kill code as a trap. Cohaagen kills Matthias and arranges to restore Hauser’s memory before leaving with Melina as a prisoner. As the officers are about to inject Quaid, Hammond (revealed to be one of the police officers involved in the raid) sacrifices himself to help Quaid escape.

Cohaagen begins his invasion of the Colony, loading the Fall with his army of robots. Quaid sneaks on board, setting timed explosives throughout the ship while searching for Melina. After freeing her, they climb atop the Fall as it arrives at the Colony. As they fight the soldiers and Cohaagen, Quaid’s explosives detonate. Quaid and Melina jump off before the ship plummets back into the tunnel and explodes underground, killing Cohaagen and destroying his army and The Fall itself. Waking up in an ambulance, Quaid is greeted by Melina. When he notices that she is missing her scar, he realizes that she is Lori using a holographic disguise; they fight and Lori is killed. Quaid finds the real Melina outside the ambulance and they embrace. As the news channels declare the independence of The Colony, Quaid notices that the emblem of Rekall that was stamped on his arm has disappeared. He looks up to find an advertisement of Rekall on an electronic billboard. Just before Quaid can kiss Melina, the screen cuts to black, making it open to interpretation whether Quaid was actually living the memory of a spy at rekall.
I love the first Total Recall film and put off watching this version due to the negative reviews and uncomplimentary comparisons with Paul Verhoeven’s original, but when I finally got around to watching this movie I was more than pleasantly surprised. Undoubtedly more dour and lacking the humour of its predecessor this is nevertheless an entertaining, action-packed, adrenalin-fuelled, visually spectacular SF movie.

THE CW UPFRONTS 2011What is the problem with CW that they took this off the air after one season? Yes, season 1 was tied up for the most part, but you knew from the end that there were lots of exciting plots for season 2. The characters were left in limbo. Sarah Michelle Gellar stars as twins, Siobhan and Bridget. Bridget is a drug user and prostitute who witnessed a murder and right before she is supposed to testify against the killer, who is a monster, she becomes frightened and takes off for parts unknown. She runs to New York city and to her estranged sister, Siobhan. Siobhan married money, but she’s a piece of work, as you will see.

Elsewhere, Henry is blackmailed by Olivia to bring Gemma’s wealthy lawyer father on as a client at Martin/Charles.

Flashbacks from seven years ago reveal Siobhan’s troubled relationship with Dylan (Misha Collins), an ex-boyfriend who dumped her after she got pregnant, but after a few years wants to prove that he was a changed man. Bridget, who is babysitting Siobhan’s son, Sean, allows Dylan to take Sean out just for one day despite Siobhan forbidding it. On their way home, Dylan asks Bridget if she can support him when he files to be Sean’s legal guardian, and a car hits them in the middle of the road, killing Sean in the process. Back in the present day, Bridget, as Siobhan, forgives Dylan after understanding that what happened was an accident, and not necessarily their fault. In the meantime, after finding out that Henry has got the key to Siobhan’s Safe deposit box, Malcolm, who’s helping Bridget to find out who’s chasing her, decides to keep an eye on Henry. Juliet’s scheme takes a dark path when Tessa is brutally attacked after buying a car with Andrew’s money, which causes Juliet to believe Mr. Carpenter did it. She then tells her father that she is willing to live with her mother in Miami for a “change of scenery”. That leads to the revelation that Catherine was the one who had the idea for the scheme.

Andrew asks Bridget (thinking she is Siobhan) to renew their vows and they begin planning a wedding ceremony, with Juliet as the Maid of honor.

Malcolm is fired when he is caught stealing information from Olivia’s computer, and later tells Bridget that Andrew’s company is running a Ponzi scheme. Catherine is romantically involved with Mr. Carpenter but then steals his money and blackmails him into leaving Juliet alone. It is also revealed that Andrew came up with the Ponzi scheme and that Catherine paid someone to attack Tessa, but to roughen her up, not beat her severely.


16) “You’re Way Too Pretty to Go to Jail”

Andrew confides in Bridget (who he thinks is Siobhan) about running a giant Ponzi scheme, which fills her with doubt and fear as she debates on what to do. Meanwhile, it is revealed that Agent Machado’s past relationship with his informant, the murder victim/stripper Shaylene Briggs (Nikki DeLoach), was more than professional. Siobhan deceives Malcolm when she pretends to be Bridget in order to remove him from the scene. In Paris, Tyler takes something from Siobhan that is a key piece of evidence in her plot for revenge against Andrew. Andrew tells Olivia that Bridget (who is acting as Siobhan) is aware of their Ponzi scheme and she suggests they take action to keep Malcolm, Bridget (acting as Siobhan) and Tyler quiet.

In an effort to find him, Bridget, with Solomon in tow, visits the hotel where Malcolm was staying and discovers on security footage that Andrew was the last person to see Malcolm before he disappeared.

Meanwhile, Juliet discovers that her mother played a part in the attack on Tessa after Juliet meets a young man with a distinctive tattoo on his right arm by which Tessa identifies him as her assailant. Siobhan travels back to New York where she admits to Henry the truth about why she faked her own death and that Andrew and Olivia are in fact the ones behind the attempts on her life. Elsewhere, Agent Machado arrives back in New York to look for Malcolm and begins to suspect that Andrew may have had a hand in his disappearance.Sarah Michelle Gellar and Zoey Deutch in Ringer (2011)

After an attempt made on Bridget’s life results in Andrew being shot, Agent Machado is more determined than ever to find out who was responsible and what Bridget (still impersonating Siobhan) knows about it. Henry accuses Siobhan of putting a hit out on Bridget, which Siobhan denies, while Bridget thinks the missing Olivia was behind it as well as the murder of Tyler. Meanwhile, Andrew admits to asking Malcolm to leave town and Juliet tells Bridget the truth about her mother.

19) “Let’s Kill Bridget!”

Henry grows impatient with Siobhan’s plan and tells her she needs to let go of her murderous revenge plot against both Andrew and Bridget or they cannot be together. Bridget decides that the only way she will feel safe is if she gives up her charade of impersonating Siobhan and returns to Wyoming to testify against the sadistic Bodaway Macawi. Agent Machado gets suspended from the FBI after he beats up a suspect in full view of witnesses. Later, he gets an idea to make Bodaway Macawi think Bridget’s dead, since that’s what he wants. The plan ends up going down terribly wrong and reveals that Catherine wants Siobhan dead.Sarah Michelle Gellar and Kristoffer Polaha in Ringer (2011)

20 “If You’re Just an Evil Bitch Then Get Over It”

Still posing as Siobhan, Bridget admits to Agent Machado that someone tried to kill her months earlier and she thought it was Andrew. Bridget goes to Henry’s apartment, where the very pregnant Siobhan overhears Bridget accuse Henry of Tyler’s murder. At the same time, Henry learns that his father-in-law is responsible for his arrest for Tyler’s murder and also has an agenda to use the flash drive to work for him. Meanwhile, Catherine goes to desperate extremes to kill Siobhan by attempting suicide to play on Juliet’s sympathies.

21) “It’s Called Improvising, Bitch!”

Andrew catches Catherine trying to fake Bridget’s suicide, so she holds them both hostage along with Juliet. Running out of options, Catherine calls Olivia, who is revealed to be her lover. Olivia tells Catherine to bring Bridget to her house, so they can run away together. When Catherine and Bridget arrive, Agent Machado arrests Catherine, having heard the conversation at the apartment after Bridget secretly calls him. Meanwhile, the main witness against Henry dies of a drug overdose and Siobhan gives birth to twin girls. Henry asks the nurse for a paternity test, showing his doubts about Siobhan.Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ioan Gruffudd, and Zoey Deutch in Ringer (2011)

22) “I’m the Good Twin”

As the vow renewal nears, Bridget realizes she needs to tell Andrew the truth about who she really is, but worries about losing everything. Jimmy has escaped from prison and demands that Bridget (who he believes is Siobhan) give him part of the cash for scaring Bridget away where she finally learns that Siobhan and Charlie hired him to scare her into fleeing Wyoming. Afterwards, Bodaway demands Jimmy reveal where Bridget is, and after getting an answer, he kills Jimmy with a knife in cold blood. Agent Machado is deported back to Colorado where he is ordered to stay off the Bodaway case. Back in New York, Tim Arbogast, Gemma’s father, believing that Siobhan was responsible for Gemma’s death, becomes the new owner of Martin/Charles Inc. and tells Andrew that Siobhan has been having an affair with Henry over the past year. Andrew is furious and cancels their vow renewal and announces that he and Siobhan are getting divorced. Now forced to do so, Bridget finally tells Andrew and Juliet the truth about who she really is. Unfortunately, they both take the news very badly, with Juliet calling Bridget worse than her own mother. Andrew and Juliet take a leave to the Hamptons after Andrew tells Bridget that she now has one month to move out. Meanwhile, Henry steals Siobhan’s money (that she stole from Andrew) and kicks her out of his house after he begins to mistrust her, including finding out that he’s not the biological father of her twins. Siobhan returns to her old apartment to steal all the jewelry that once was hers. Bodaway then attacks her believing she’s Bridget, and the real Bridget then shows up and after a brief struggle she kills him, thinking he was attacking Juliet. Agent Machado arrives after getting Bridget’s call and reassures her that Andrew and Juliet are safe in the Hamptons. At the hospital, Siobhan, now broke and homeless, tries to think of a way to get her old life back. Later, Solomon shows Bridget security footage that shows Siobhan was alive on the day of her “suicide” talking with Charlie. Bridget angrily confronts Henry, who after being punched by Andrew earlier, finally tells Bridget the truth about her sister. A horrified Bridget then says: “Siobhan wanted me dead?”MV5BOTk1NDQ3MjY0M15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzMxMTM0MjE@._V1_This show was a great suspense show and really needed closure, sadly that was not meant to be, we didn’t even get a dvd release.
